Hi Everyone, Very Happy

Thank you Corinna,That was a tricky one.

OK here goes, This is a small bird that is a rare passage migrant to Britian,It will search for food in the tree canopy or catch prey on the wing like flies ,beetles,ants and spiders.It has a tail like a wren with a black tip.

I think that last clue will have given it away but we'll see.

Lets say PM's to me by sunday night 9pm (possible extend to Monday if no replies received)

Good luck Thumbs up

This bird is about 25cm, common, wide-ranging and eats insects, fruits and berries.

Not giving any more clues now, 'cos I think it might be too easy, but will put up another clue tomorrow if no one has got it. Answers to me by Sat 8pm please.

Thanks Dawn/Matthew.

Now this is another easy one, but just to make you do a little research, you will just have to use the habitat, and the clue i will give about the female. I just want to make sneaky do a bit of work lol.

Here goes folks, and good hunting.

Habitat- Edges of rivers/gravel- pits. Will utilies drier habitats ie: Heathland scrub, likes fields of rape.

This bird has one unique rather dubious claim to fame, the female is the most promiscious of anyUK bird species.
Perhaps the females search for bit of exitement in her life, is linked to the males monotonous and uninteresting song.

Could you PM me say by 7pm wednesday 24/1/07 thanks and good luck all who have a go. Wink

Will see if any more clues are needed tomorrow.
